Fall Guide 2009 

The arts, now more than ever...

We're a year into the great economic collapse that has yet to be named (although economists will say it's been two years, not one). It's no secret that large arts institutions have been hammered as private and public sources of revenue dry up. One doesn't have to scratch hard to find evidence of distress. Let's just say that this is the year to make an extra effort to support local arts groups with our patronage, our contributions and our word of mouth.

In this year's Fall Guide, we decided to look at a few examples of arts groups doing more with less. We spent time with artists and organizers who are pressing ahead with their work, finding creative ways to put out art in times that need art more than ever, from museums that are joining forces to put up an economical show of Andy Warhol photos to a longtime theater group's quest to find a new space, from musicians taking over the means of production and distribution to a recently laid-off film expert finding a new home for his curatorial skills. And in our calendar of events, we survey the upcoming season's highlights in film, music, theater, dance and art.


THEATER
Raleigh Ensemble Players push ahead with their permanent home on Fayetteville Street

MUSIC
Midtown Dickens asked its community for help and found an overwhelming response

FILM
Cheap celluloid dates at the Colony Theater's Cinema Overdrive

VISUAL ART
Three regional museums embark on an economical collaboration, a traveling exhibition of Andy Warhol Polaroids
